The Audi R8 E-Tron Concept car

One of the highlights from the 2009 Frankfurt Auto Show has to be the futuristic Audio E-Tron Concept. Today's video blog takes a closer look at this advanced automobile.

A lot of cars from a variety of manufacturers made their world debut at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. Perhaps one of the most noteworthy automobiles to emerge out of Frankfurt was the Audi R8 E-Tron concept car. Yes, it is certainly flashy and eye appealing. But what may be more appealing to an increasingly eco-friendly world of car consumers, this car has no engine (WHAT?!!!). Yeah, I said it - NO ENGINE. This baby is powered by a feisty lithium ion battery packs, and supposedly runs completely off electrical energy. Impressive, eh?

Today we're putting the "Tech" back into this Car Tech blog with a web video produced by CarAndDriver.com straight outta Frankfurt with some glorious, up-close footage of the revolutionary Audi E-Tron plus we get more details on how the car works and its potential impact on the auto industry. Supposedly, this E-Tron Concept car will only be available in extremely limited quantities, especially in markets foreign to the Audi make. I dare not utter how much this vehicle sells for, as it would make my heart shrivel up in its poverty-bound reality. But alas, I still appreciate the beauty of the car's sleek, aerodynamic style and eco-minded concept.
